Carly Pearce & Ashley McBryde Join Forces on “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”

Carly Pearce & Ashley McBryde Join Forces on “Never Wanted To Be That Girl”

Carly Pearce‘s new album, 29: Written In Stone arrives Friday.

One of the tracks from the 15-song project is “Never Wanted To Be That Girl” – which features Ashley McBryde!

Carly says that she’s known Ashley for years, and always wanted to work on something with her…so, much like she did when she asked Luke Combs to write “I Hope You’re Happy Now” – Carly took a shot and asked Ashley if she wanted to work together, “I know that Ashley and I are very different, but in a lot of ways…musically and vocally we’re quite similar, and I would sit next to her in ’rounds that we’ve played over the years, and just be like ‘uh, I want to sing with her’ and I just asked her if she wanted to write a song, much like I did with Luke (Combs) and she did.”

Ashley shares, “I think we discussed a couple of, not really exchanging stories about being cheated on, but some scenarios that could happen. How does other girl meet guy? How does this happen? And I think we started with the first line. We were just talking about what if it were as innocent as needing help changing a tire because you weren’t wearing the proper clothing or you just got your nails done or whatever. To change the tire and then that dude says, ‘We should go get a beer.” You would. And if you hit it off you would keep doing it. So, we just started at the top left-hand corner of the page.”

Carly adds, “I know, right? We kind of wrote it as it was going in real time. (Yeah.) And, you know, for me, I felt like I was in a season with Shane where we just could all feel in the room what kind of thing we were gonna write, and it just kinda was the matter of landing on the right way to do it.”

Ashley, “We didn’t know exactly how the story was gonna turn out. We just kinda found out as we wrote it.”

“Never Wanted To Be That Girl” is one of the tracks on Carly Pearce’s new album, 29: Written In Stone – which arrives this Friday, September 17th
